Sony stated that the PlayStation VR 2, a follow-up to the PlayStation VR, will hit the market for the PlayStation 5 in the not-too-distant future. We’ve covered everything you need to know before it hits the market. We mentioned all the features, pricing, new improvements, and probable release dates for the PSVR 2 in this article.
So, spare some of your time and go through this article to learn about PS VR2.
What is PlayStation VR2?
The PSVR 2 announcement from Sony was a little low on details, but the revelation of the PS5 VR controllers provided us with a better idea of what to anticipate from Sony’s second-generation VR system. The PSVR 2 will link to the PS5 through a single cable and be able to interact with virtual reality content on Sony’s next-generation platform, which will include games, movies, and social features.
PlayStation VR 2: Features and Rumors
After almost five years of the release of PS VR, Sony is finally back with Playstation VR 2. Going with the patent filed in 2019, Sony is ready to reduce motion sickness in users in the new release of PS5 VR2. Sony itself confirmed a few features that you can expect on the PSVR 2 release date.
The massive difference you are going to spot is the new television coming with 4k resolution. According to the new set of rumors that landed, it will have a total resolution of 4000 x 2040 pixels with the availability of lens adjustment, gaze tracking, and a built-in motor that might be useful for haptic feedback.
The new headset will feature Samsung’s OLED panels, although manufacturers like Facebook and HTC have opted for LCD panels due to their greater practicality at higher resolutions despite their lower contrast. However, Sony decided to stick with OLED for their next release.
Is PlayStation VR 2 going to be wireless?
Too much of a surprise, the PSVR2 won’t be wireless. It rather connects with the PS5 with a single cord to simplify the setup as much as possible. Also, it enables a precise visual experience for its users. The single cord will connect via USB-C as the Console comes with a USB-C port seen all wide on the front.
When will Sony release PSVR2?
After the long wait since 2016, Sony has finally confirmed that they are working on the new PSVR 2. However, they have still not given any exact official release date. Brings us to the conclusion that there is still a lot of work left. And, they won’t be hitting the market before 2022. Bloomberg sources say that Sony has been aiming to release the successor of PSVR in the holiday period next year. So, better not to expect PSVR 2 in the market anytime before 2022.
PSVR 2 Price
The current affordable price for PSVR is $200 which came after several price drops. But the original price of $499 can give us a good idea of what Sony might demand its new PSVR 2. With all the improvements and use of new high tech could definitely hike the price more than expected. Though this is all one can predict from the past, we still have to wait till Sony officially releases its Virtual Reality headset.
PlayStation VR 2 Controller
Sony has also confirmed that they are working on the PS VR 2 controllers with a huge upgrade. The orbital design of the controller allows you to move your hand and hold the controller naturally. Further, the new controller supports haptic feedback and adaptive triggers present on the dual sense controller of PS5. Additionally, Sony confirms that this isn’t all and there will be more to come.
No wonder the PlayStation VR 2 is coming with multiple improvements with the controllers. Alongside haptic feedback and finger touch detection. Rest assured, it’s going to be quite different than the PS4 VR v2 and worth the wait when we officially hear from Sony on PS5 VR 2.
